August Record Catches
Angler Robert W. Simmons of Saint Charles, MO, USA, guided by S. Barreto Franco, caught this 4.76 kg (10 lb 8 oz) pinima peacock (Cichla pinima) on 7/13/2010 while fishing the Sucunduri River, Brazil. The fish hit Simmons’ peacock jig and took him 5 minutes to land and qualifies for an all-tackle record. The current IGFA record is vacant.
